F&W Test Kitchen whiz Justin Chapple demos a genius trick for hulling strawberries with a drinking straw.
[MUSIC] I'm Justin Chapple from Food and Wine's test kitchen. Join me as I demonstrate Mad Genius Tips. [MUSIC] [BLANK_AUDIO] This Mad Genius Tip will teach you to hull a strawberry with a drinking straw. So what you're gonna do is fluff the little leaves of your strawberry just like this. Because that's gonna help you remove the hull later. And then you're going to insert just a regular drinking straw, just like this, into the bottom of the strawberry and press it up gently through the top. And, if all goes according to plan, you will pop out the strawberry hull with the cute little hat attached. And you can do a little dance. Just like that we have a perfectly hulled strawberry. Let's do it again. We're gonna fluff, press it up, just like that. [BLANK_AUDIO] Hi, I'm Matthew Giglio, food and wine expert and educator. People always ask me to pair wine with premium chocolate, so if I'm drinking a full bodied red like a Cabernet, I like to pair it with Lindt excellence 70% cocoa. The refined bitterness of the dark chocolate is the perfect contrast to the wine's intense ripe fruit, creating a delicious, memorable pairing. [MUSIC]
